The basic theme of the life and teaching of Jesus Christ on his 3,5 years of his ministry on planet earth is to save mankind. From a sinful condition of isolation, despair, loneliness, fear and darknees to a new life in relation with God with joy, love, freedom and light.
All mankind had fallen out of Gods original plan of having a close relationship with all people. Mankind had chosen to live their life on earth on their own and without the guidance of God. The egoistic nature of mankind had turned their back to God instead of standing face to face to their God and Creator. This produce in mankind a sinful condition, which influence everybodies spirit, soul and body. Sin produces sorrow and pain and separation from God, your Heavenly Father and exclude you from the meaning and plan for your life on earth.
The teaching and life of Jesus Christ is to reestablish the relation between God the Almighty and mankind. Jesus Christ tells you, how you can get the close relation to God, how you learn to hear Gods voice and how you can live the christian life in accordance to the teaching and guidance of Jesus Christ, the Son of Man and the Son of God.
“Then Jesus cried out:
– When a man believes in me, he does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me. When he looks at me, he sees the one who sent me. I come into the world as a light, so that no-one who believes in me should stay in darkness.
-As for the person who hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge him. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save it. There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very word which I spoke will condemn him at the last day.
– For I did not speak of my own accord, but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and how to say it. I know that his command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say.”
Quote from Johannes Gospel, chapter 12, verses 44-50, the NIV Study Bible, New International Version, Hodder & Stoughton, 1990. Pages: 2145.
The death of Jesus Christ on the cross on Golgata unite mankind to Abraham, Isak and Jacob`s God, the Creator and the Almighty God. The relation to God through the death of Jesus Christ is a free gift to everyone – but you have to make your own descision to choose this relationship to your Creator.
Everyone has to confess their sins to God, repent and ask forgiveness and help to follow the way of God and og The Lord Jesus Christ.
The salvation through Jesus Christ is a gift of love, joy, peace and freedom from God to you. Its for you personally. You just need only to reach out to God through Jesus Christ and you will receive The Holy Ghost, who will enlight your spirit, soul and body. Jesus Christ gives you a new life where He through the Holy Spirit restores your spirit, soul and body from the negative consequences of living a sinfull life without the grace and presence of God, your Father.
Jesus prays in Getsemane Garden the night before his death on a cross at Golgata:
” After Jesus said this, he looked towards heaven and prayed:
– Father, the time has come: Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.”
Quote from Johannes Gospel, Chapter 17, verses 1-5, NIV Study Bible, New International Version, Hodder & Stoughton, London, Sydney, Auckland, Toronto, 1990. Pages: 2145.
The 8. july 1987 I prayed to God, confessed my sins, asked forgiveness and asked for receiving of the Holy Spirit in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. God answered immediately my prayer and I received the peace and love in my spirit, soul and body. And the presence of God har been in me, over me and with me since that day in 1987 and today. Its the best and most important decision I have ever made and will ever make. I confirme it with thanks to God – Father, Son and the Holy Spirit every day in my life.
May God give you help and courage to make the decision to follow his Son Jesus Christ. Its never too late – and the grace of God will reach the bottom and the most secret dark deep of your heart to fill it with His light, love and forgiveness. God knows you more than you do and wants a close relationship with you to restored all, what have gone wrong in your life.
May God bless you.
